Requisite Personal Holism as a Basis of Social Responsibility

Simona Š. Žižek, Zdenka Ženko and Sonja Treven


Prerequisites for prevention of repetition of (financial, economic and also social) crises, as well as for their abolition, include requisitely holistic individuals. Hence the organizations should look at humans as multilayered, not only as professional entities. </p><p> In synergy, not only individually, we define humans as: (1) physical, (2) mental, (3) social, (4) spiritual, and (5) economic entities, marked by requisitely, though not absolutely holistic pattern of relatively permanent characteristics, due to which the individuals differ from each other, and also as (6) specialized professionals. All these and other attributes form synergies.Thus, we define the requisite holism of an employee as an individual existing and conscious of self as (1) Physical person, implementing active techniques to gain physical balance, (2) Mental entity, enriching sentiment, perception, mind and will-power by life-balancing techniques, (3) Social entity, building quality communication with others by the techniques of professional and working development and social integrity, (4) Spiritual entity, longing after selfactualization and the sense of life, carrying it into effect by the techniques of spiritual development and (5) Economic entity, striving to satisfy her material needs as a person, family member, co-worker and as a member of a wider society by using one’s profession. In this way the behavior of individuals, who are willing to practice interdisciplinary co-operation, becomes socially responsible. One can implement also management of requisite personal holism.
